 Installation of ATM-like Drug Dispensing Machine

About 40 new drug-dispensing machines manufactured by PharmaTrust, which will fill out prescriptions 24 hours all 7days a week, will soon be available in Ontario. In order to ensure patient safety, the machines have undergone rigorous testing.

As the machines are designed to mimic the interaction between the patients and pharmacists, it would also enable the Ontarians in rural communities to have one-to-one consultations with a pharmacist. Patients feed their prescriptions into a slot. Via a two-way video monitor patients can consult a real pharmacist. After the prescription is validated by the pharmacist, the pharmacist authorizes and supervises the dispensing of medicines.

Narcotics may be available in the machines located in hospitals but will not be dispensed by these dispensing machines.
